In order to measure patients' inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) related side effect perceptions the 14-day retrospective Inhaled Corticosteroid Questionnaire (ICQ) was developed. In this research we aim to assess the construct validity and reliability of the ICQ and test its responsiveness to dose changes in adult asthma patients. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, current inhaler users with asthma completed the ICQ (27 with non ICS inhaler; 61 BDP equivalent daily ICS low dose 400 µg; 62 mid dose µg; and 105 with high dose >800 µg). We generated 3 construct validity hypotheses: 1) a hierarchical dose-response pattern for scoring of the individual items on the ICQ, and statistically significant differences in the scores of each of the 15 ICQ domains by ICS dose group 2) an association between ICS dose and ICQ scoring after adjusting for appropriate confounders in multiple regression; 3) greater convergence between local side effect domains than between systemic and local domains of the scale. Test-retest reliability was assessed on a randomly selected subgroup of patients (n = 73) who also completed the ICQ a second time after 7 days. In a separate longitudinal study, 61 patients with asthma completed the ICQ at baseline and after changing their daily ICS dose, at 2- and 6- months, in order to test the ICQ's responsiveness. Results: All three construct validity hypotheses were well supported: 1) a statistically significant difference existed in scores for 14 domains, the high ICS dose group scoring highest; 2) ICS dose independently predicted ICQ scoring after adjusting for confounders; 3) greater convergence existed between local ICQ domains than between local and systemic domains. The ICQ had good reproducibility: test-retest intraclass correlation coefficients were 0.69 for all but the 'Facial Oedema' domain. In the longitudinal study, ICQ scores for 'Voice Problems' changed significantly at 2- and 6-months from baseline and other ICQ domains displayed trends in scoring change accordant with dose modulation at 6-months. Conclusion: The ICQ has good dose-related discriminative properties, is valid, reliable, and shows potential responsiveness to ICS dose change. This is the end of the Sample ICQ clinical validity.

Please r etur n Scoring & administration to page 1 to purchase complete version.roid Questionnaire (ICQ) The Inhaled Corticosteroid Questionnaire (ICQ) comes in two forms ie. a 57 item questionnaire long form and a 15 item short form. This ICQ is a useful tool for measuring patients' perceptions of ICS associated side effects. The ICQ shows good reliability and validity in asthma patients and has good discriminative properties. Used for systematic measurement, this simple questionnaire may provide a greater understanding of the side effect perceptions of patients in clinical practice and clinical trials, and will yield useful new perspectives on the relationship between perceived side effect of ICS and adherence. The ICQ covers a range of patient-perceived side effects including voice, throat, skin and mood problems. The ICQ was scored on an item level from 0 (not at all) to 6 (a very great deal) other response options being: 1 (a very little), 2 (a little), 3 (a moderate amount), 4 (quite alot), 5 (a great deal). In order that domain scores with differing numbers of items could be compared, the 15 domain scores were transformed into a score out of 100 The total score of the ICQ (0 100) is the average of the 15 domain scores (sum the scores of 15 domains/15). The highest score represents the greatest side effect. To calculate a score for a subscale: Add up all the respondents answers for each of the questions listed for that subscale (this is the raw score) place it in the subscale equation
